Dear all,

I’m very new in web development and like to take up challenges to develop 2 projects. The specs are given as below.
1) Can the experts out there give me clues whether Joomla is suitable for the requirements below?
2) Please also give me some tips/pointers for me to start learning. This will be helpful for my learning & development.

1)Project 1

A club’s website
- Portal for a club, which has about 1,400 members
- 3 separate sections with roughly similar content - one for 3 different age groups
- 3 groups of admins - one to manage each section
- Need upload video function, which can convert various video files to flv format (similar to YouTube)

2) Project 2
Apparel Community Portal
- Portal for designer, t-shirt enthusiasts to buy original design t-shirts
- Users can have their own profile page with image gallery and discussion (like Facebook Fun Wall)
- Design competition - users can submit t-shirt designs for ppl to vote
- eCommerce - need SSL, tie up to bank for credit card payment

Thank you.

Absolutely, Magento is an extremely customizable application if you know how to use it; in which Joomla, Wordpress, and Drupal can all be easily integrated.

If you need an integration or design implementation done, feel free to contact us.  We would be happy to assist you.
